It was empty, and, for France, relativly cheap. But I am sure that both of these are because of the season.
Beautiful setting in the Loire valley and with hotel units built in Bali style around a lovel lake. Staff were friendly and helpful, the restaurant buffet was fantastic, the outdoor swimming pool lovely. Fabulous place and we would definitely stay again and for longer. Wi-Fi didn't work in our room.
The sleeping facilities, the water around with all the ducks and frogs No eating "a la carte" after 21h15. After a long day work (we were there for business), we did not want to eat from the buffet and it was 21h17 and they made no exception :-(
Lovely designs based in Bali with many woodcarvings and koi carp, large rooms and a warm swimming pool, the buffet dinner was plentiful and delicious.
Good size family accomodation with good ensuite bathroom facilities and quality furniture. Lovely swimming pool and the opening times worked well for us as a family especially when we had been out for the day, as there was still time for tea and a swim before bedtime. The towel rail worked well for getting everyone's swimming stuff dry overnight for swimming again the next day. Loved the pond setting with the turtles, fish and ducks. We stayed in lots of different accomodation in France, but yours was our favourite hotel. No kettle, tea or coffee making facilities in the rooms. We stayed in lots of places, and yours was the only one that didn't have this. The coffee in the vending machine was horrible, and there was no tea or hot chocolate alternative. Kettles in the rooms would be a big improvement, with drinks made to our own taste - not worrying if we'd got change for the machine, and feeling more relaxed that can just make a drink when you want one without having to get dressed and leave your room. Breakfast costs for a family were very expensive, more than other places.
The hotel was gorgeous. The landscaping really takes you away to another world. Very serene & relaxing. The pond and the waterfall give it a storybook feel. We got the family room which was great for 4 adults and one small child who shared king size bed with parents. FYI: Top bunk has a max weight of 50 kilos. Playground and pool a plus if you have children. Also, zoo borders property. Got the buffet dinner at restaurant. Appetizers salads & deserts where amazing. The cooked/hot food was a bit disapointing. Beef was chewy, chicken cold and dry. Website said room was for 3 adults and one child so I paid 20euros for an extra bed. When I got there and asked about extra bed they said they didn't have one. I explained I paid extra and they said that was for having an additional adult, not for extra bed. Felt a bit cheated. You're a captive audience since there is no village withing walking distance.
Helpful friendly staff. Clean room, excellent food
The wanderful place (the Garden, the pool). no restaurant
Pool, tennis court, park, terrace The room and bathroom is very tatty and one was also infested with insects. Many other guests were surprised at the lack of restaurant caused partly by their Hotel Restaurant brochures!
Smell, Small rooms, Internet connection only at the Rezeption, breakfast Starts only at 8.00 A.M.
Quiet and charming Nothing relevant
Quiet and lovely location in coutryside. Close to major Chateaus in Loire and excellent restaurants. Hooting of the owls late at night followed by the screech of its prey. Otherwise excellent.
The rooms were large, clean and beautiful. We lived in a castle. Breakfast was ok. They didn't have lift, but we stay only for one night and it was ok. We have supper in a near village, because they didn't have restraunt in the hotel. Har to find on a road.
nice room, nice place, grand hotel. Far from the town
The surroundings The price of the breakfast is really too expensive. It should not be higher than 10 euros.
We liked the quietness of the place, the swimmingpool, the chateau itself, the proprietors and the type of other guests visiting. In my opinion, the mattresses were too soft or worn out.
Really a beautiful, serene location, absolutely gorgeous outdoor terrace, and great pool and tennis court. Beautiful grounds and a lovely small pub. We will be back many times!
Nice surroundings, very nice and thoughtful landlady, tasty french breakfast, something like a zoo around the building (lamas, horses, peacocks E.T.C.). We didn't test the waterpool because of weather, but it really exists. WiFi signal was quite weak in our room, at the same time it was perfect into the common room next to ours (seems like the walls are too thick). But since we were almost alone in this building - it was Ok.
This place is categorically not an Hotel! It is an impressive chateaux set in very nice gounds where ther are chalets for family occupation and a vatiety of animals - good fun if that's what you want. However what we wanted was a comforatble 'hotel' in which to stay with all the usual 'hotel' facilities and that's what we thought we had booked. What we got was a basic room, with a basic continental breakfast for how much? €125! No bar, no restaurant, and several Km into town for something to eat after driving all day. No wonder it is not listed anywhere else as a 'hotel' and why my satnav showed the location as the middle of a field!
Very quiet, chaming and great place. We took our pre-wedding photos at the chateau. All of the photos are beautiful and we have excellent experience.
Beautiful building in a beautiful setting. The owner was very helpful and waited for us even after the check in time. There is a list of restaurants available for the evening and breakfast is included. The hotel is very quiet and in a park with animals to see. We did not use the swimming pool only because of the weather!
Excellent location. Very good to examine the region. Large room with nice service. There is no restaurant in the hotel (the near one is 3 minutes drive).
Absolutely too cool to stay at an old chateau. None.
The owner was very friendly & helpful. The room was comfortable for a family of 4. Delicious breakfast!
It was out in the country - when we woke up we could see the horses in the meadow. The rooms were lovely, the owner was very friendly and we had a wonderful stay even though the weather did not allow for use of the pool. It was a great place from which to visit the chateaux. It was a bit hard to find and like most of the hotels in France, the tub would benefit with the addition of a shower curtain.
We wanted a hotel centrally located in the Loire Valley with lots of French charm. If you love the country side, this place is convenient for going east or west in Loire to visit the chateaux, with other local options such as: hiking, bicycling, horseback riding, hot air ballooning, etc. Our room was very spacious. No A/C, but it doesn't matter, the room was comfortably cool. Our bathroom had a bath tub with a hand held shower, not unlike many hotels in Europe. I highly recommend this chateau. Staff is very accommodating. You might want to brush up on your French! Americans would probably call it a B & B. Free wireless Wi-Fi in sitting area. The night sky with the stars is absolutely amazing. Works for families &/or romantics.
Staying in the main chateau was fantastic - a real treat. The room was a family room and it was very spacious. Four poster bed, full access to swimming pool and grounds. The children particularly liked the animals in the grounds. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone. Not applicable.
We wanted to be in a central location to visit a variety of chateaus and cathedrals and this was convenient and had free parking. Our room was quite distance from the chateau in a converted farm outbuilding. Very cramped and very poor ventilation. Entry drive in very poor shape.
A very pleasant and convenient base to explore the Loire valley. Carrying luggage up a spiral staircase to the top floor, limited choice evening meal.
Very attractive buildings set in pleasant countryside close to Cheverny. Our room (in the Vestry annexe) was new and very well appointed and had air conditioning. Restaurant was excellent, though with no choice of menu. Good wines. Attentive service. Price was at the high end for this hotel.
Friendly staff, nice location and good food
Very good and excellent cuisine. none
The surroundings were very pleasant and easy to walk around. The hotel has easy access to Blois
The hotel is very pretty and quiet location. Restaurant was also good. Room was nice, clean and comfortable.
The grounds were lovley but the rooms were small Rooms were very basic
The dinner was high quality (fixed price menus available at 30, 40 euros). Quiet rural location, near several major chateaux. Large bedroom. A bit expensive for its quality. A bit old fashioned in decor/style of rooms. (But all functioned ok). Free wifi only offered in common parts, and at restricted times, although nearby bedrooms could get just the signal. No /ac (although not needed on our visit).
Welcoming and helpful staff; peaceful surroundings, pool
Very well sited for the Loire Chateaux. Good family run hotel with excellent restaurant and service. Would have been nice to have a shower screen on the bath. Not too warm when we were there in September, but in summer months the rooms lacking aircon might be an issue.
A very pleasant environment and an excellent location from which to explore the Loire Valley; friendly staff Unimaginative breakfast, limited choice.
A lovely atmosphere, created by the location and the excellent staff. The location was ideal for visiting several chateau. The immediate location, set among fields, with a pond near the main entrance, was a delight.
Excellent food. Pleasant grounds. Comparatively expensive. Fixed menu only on evening of our visit.
We liked the location for seeing chateaux, the garden restaurant, the beautifully decorated bedroom, the wonderful bathroom and the comfortable pilows and bed. The food was wonderful, although the breakfast buffet was more limited that in the other hotels we stayed in. Unfortunately, something happened with our reservation.I had the booking.com confirmation I received for the night of Sept.1st, but the Auberge du Centre had a booking confirmation for that night and the night before when we were still in Roissy and attending a wedding.The woman at the desk was very upset about this and she spent at least twenty minutes talking to me about it.There was little I could do but explain my end of the reservation(in French, I might add) and feel more and more upset as she went on.I felt sorry that a mistake had happened and for her loss of income.This problem took the joy out of what should have been a very pleasant experience.I never received any confirmation other than for Sept.1st for this hotel from you.
Very pleasent service. Room very nicely decorated, elegant and stylish, but not too heavy, creating a cosy atmosphere. Quiet. Excellent restaurant, aperitif offered by the hotel in a comfortable common space/bar.
